Drew Hendry: ...at Euratom on (a) the future ownership of Euratom’ s inspectors and equipment in the UK, (b) future arrangements for special fissile materials and (c) future arrangements for used fuel and radioactive waste.
Lord Carrington of Fulham: ...from new is a specialist business, but one that is done all the time. For larger items, it is possible to carbon-14 date the ivory. It requires taking a piece of the ivory and subjecting it to radioactive treatment. That does not work for smaller items because of the size of the piece of ivory that is destroyed in the dating process. But specialists in ivory can identify old carved ivory...
Lord Hunt of Chesterton: ...other important issue we have to think about in the context of climate change and the environment is nuclear fission. France has the lowest carbon emissions because it uses nuclear fission, but the radioactive waste is then stored in the ground. Euratom has proposed processes by which we deal with this waste. It will be in the ground for a long time—perhaps thousands of years—so we...
Deidre Brock: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, at which sites managed by his Department radioactive materials are stored, and at which such sites radioactive materials were previously stored during the last 10 years.
Ed Vaizey: ...of Euratom. So when we leave Euratom, we will have to have, in effect, a Euratom-style arrangement to allow us to move goods around. “Goods” can mean a variety of things. We imagine highly radioactive canisters being moved in special trains at the dead of night, but the movement of goods also involves mundane things such as heat pumps, motors, spares and other components, all of which,...
Deidre Brock: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, to set out the (a) volume, (b) isotopic content and (c) origin of the wastes stored at each licensed nuclear site.
Carol Monaghan: ...-up to the EU referendum was membership of Euratom. Will the Prime Minister now inform people working in nuclear medicine—such as my sister, and many of my constituents—where they will obtain radioactive sources to treat and diagnose cancer when we are outside Euratom?
Iain Stewart: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he plans to update the regulatory provisions governing nuclear waste in light of recent natural science evidence concerning the health effects of low-ionizing radiation.
Louise Ellman: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what plans his Department has to ensure no disruption to the movement of radioactive isotopes required for medical supplies after the UK has left the EU; and if he will make a statement.
Gregory Campbell: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what assessment his Department has made of the effect on the UK environment of recent reports of radioactive pollution, including traces of ruthenium 106 detected in France, spreading from Eastern Europe.
Holly Lynch: .... As already mentioned, the public are more aware of plastics in our oceans than ever before. That has generated a real appetite to do more to reduce all pollutants, such as heavy metals, oil, radioactive materials and plastics, including microbeads. We welcomed the recent announcement by the Secretary of State for the Environment that he supports a deposit scheme for plastic bottles, yet...
Stephen Doughty: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what guidance his Department or the Environment Agency have issued to EDF regarding the removal of radioactively contaminated mud from the vicinity of Hinkley Point C to the other side of the Bristol Channel at Cardiff Grounds.
...all relevant to the Nuclear Safeguards Bill, but I point out that chapter 9 of the Euratom treaty guarantees the unimpeded transport and tariff-free trade not only of nuclear materials but also of radioactive isotopes used in medicine and industry.
Trudy Harrison: Q Just changing tone slightly, I notice, Kevin, that you have a reference to concern around radioactive isotopes. I do not share that concern. I do not understand why you think this is relevant to Euratom, because they are not fissile material. I have not heard of anyone using plutonium or uranium in medical practice. I wonder, if they have not been risk-assessed by the IAEA, why you would...
Stephen Doughty: ..., Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions Ministers or officials of his Department have had with National Resources Wales and Welsh Government Ministers on the proposal for the removal of radioactively contaminated mud from the Hinkley Point C site to be disposed of at Cardiff Grounds.
Lord Grantchester: To ask Her Majesty's Government which departments will be responsible for the management of any future legislation relating to Euratom and EU Directives on (1) radioactive waste and spent fuel management, (2) protection against ionising radiation, (3) the supervision and control of shipments of radioactive waste and spent fuel, and (4) drinking water.
Lord Prior of Brampton: Robust arrangements are in place to ensure effective joint regulatory working in relation to safe plant operation and in relation to controlling the use of radioactive substances and the safe management and disposal of consequential waste arisings. It is not anticipated that these arrangements will be affected by the UK’s withdrawal from Euratom.
Nick Thomas-Symonds: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether he has had discussions with the Welsh Government on minimising any potential effect of radioactive sediment from the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant on the South Wales coastline.
Nick Thomas-Symonds: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what assessment he has made of the potential effect of radioactive sediment from the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant on the South Wales coastline.
Nick Thomas-Symonds: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how he plans to ensure the safety of the South Wales coastline in relation to potential effect of radioactive sediment from the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant.
